I just realised there's a whole bunch of people doing what I (attempt to) do each month - a round up of my sewing for the month. Fresh Sewing Day at Lily's Quilts has a whole host of August sewing round ups.
August marked the real return to The List after a handful of rather busy months (tip: don't plan your wedding and new baby for the same three month period if you value sleep in any way).
I won't go so far as to say it was a resounding success (I'm not entirely sure I've knit more than four rows on Teddy's jumper - which is likely to end up being reassigned to Jasper if I don't finish it soon), but it also wasn't a dismal failure. Round up:
1. Finish the Sunshine Quilt.
It won't surprise you to learn that I haven't finished it. I am trying not to get cross about that. Can we not talk about it just now?
2. Make a new sunhat for Teddy.
Hurrah! Done! And I do realise that is not, in fact, Teddy.
3. Knit a colourwork sweater for Teddy.
Well, I've knitted something that more resembles a colourwork belt. but hey, it's making progress. Thankfully I only planned a band of colourwork round the bottom, which I'm on the last row of, so it should start making good progress soon!
4. Knit a wool soaker or longies for Jasper.
Um. Nope. I really should get this on the needles so I have something mindless in progress.
5. Finish the Single Girl quilt
Meh. Jasper's not using his cot. I'm disinclined to make him a quilt. Can you tell the sleep deprivation is getting tedious? And if anyone leaves a comment about how their baby slept through at 3 weeks (or, indeed, slept more than 2 hours together at any point before 5 months) I am liable to have a hormonal moment.
September's list coming tomorrow!
